Cuddy and Feder Law Firms New York

Andrew P. Schriever, Chair of the firm’s Cannabis Law practice and Partner in the Litigation group was quoted in Chronogram Magazine in a story reporting about the cannabis DUI conundrum and how police can accurately detect driving under the influence of cannabis, while also curtailing incidents of unreasonable vehicle searches.

“Unfortunately, there is always the potential for racial discrimination in enforcement, but New York’s cannabis law is at least intended to make it harder by raising the standard for probable cause to search a vehicle,” says Andrew Schriever, an attorney who serves on the board of the New York City and Hudson Valley Cannabis Industry Associations. “The law is not a cure-all, but it is a positive step to reduce the potential for race-based enforcement.”

According the article, cannabis DUIs will be a part of the future, however, the logistics of who will get them and how they will be tested are still to be determined.
